Nokia has announced a refreshed Nokia 8110 "banana phone", the same super-stylish phone that Neo used in The Matrix. At the time everyone, including myself, wanted the Nokia 7110 and its spring-loaded slider - now we can do it again.

HMD is the maker of Nokia-branded smartphones and has delivered the Nokia 8110 with the slider we all loved back in the day, in two versions: black and yellow.

There's no snazzy Android 8.0 inside of the refreshed Nokia 8110 with HMD running with Smart Feature OS, a very bland operating system but there's not much you can expect when it's priced at under $100.

Inside, the Nokia 8110 features LTE support in Europe with dual-SIM versions on offer, with Qualcomm's 205 Mobile Platform processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of storage. There's a 2.4-inch QVGA display and 2-megapixel camera on the back, so you won't be envied over the specs, that's for sure.

There's a revamped version of Snake (OMFG!) and an astounding 25 days of battery standby.

Nokia's refreshed 8110 will be available in May for only 79 euros ($97).
